An alliance between Lendlease, CPB Contractors, WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff, Aurecon and Metro Trains Melbourne has secured a contract for the $1.6bn Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing Removal Project in Australia.

 
The project will see the removal of nine dangerous level crossings, the construction of five new stations and the upgrade of signalling and power. It will also transform lengthy rail and rocks into new parks, paths and open space.

Along with the 65 new high-capacity metro trains, the project will create space for 11,000 extra passengers to catch the train on Melbourne's busiest rail line.

Victoria’s treasurer Tim Pallas said: "The project to eliminate these congested death traps is about to begin, and 2,000 jobs are about to be created.

"This project will deliver more room, on more trains to carry more people on Melbourne's busiest rail line. It's needed now, and we're not going to waste a day - we're going to get it done."
